today, New report on the next batch In the grand theft auto series claim it GTA 6 A playable woman will appear. You might assume that this is the first playable female character in the series. but, Technicallythere were a few women who could be played in GT games before this. The key word in the last sentence is “technically”.

Most of the games are about men Like CJ or Tommy Vercetti. So it was a pretty big deal when it was newly released Bloomberg Report He claimed that the next game in the series, which is said to take place in Vice City, will star in a Latin woman. Many observers assumed that this would be the first time that Rockstar had ever allowed a woman to star in GT Game. But if you are old enough GT Nerd, you know that’s not the case.
the first GT The game that allows you to play as a woman was … in fact, the original grand theft autoIt was released in 1997 on PC and PlayStation. This game gave you a list of characters you could choose to play with, which included not just one, but four different women: divineAnd the MakkyAnd the KatieAnd the Ulrika.

Beyond their names and profile pictures, you can’t really tell you were playing as a woman at the expense of the game’s limited top-to-bottom visuals. But, technically, you can play the role of a woman grand theft auto All the way back in the late ’90s.
